395 Coldharbour Lane, Brixton
It was a typical working-class "caff" with homely atmosphere and traditional British food.
As of January 2014, the Phoenix has moved from its original site at 441 Coldharbour Lane to 395. It is said by the Brixton Buzz blog that this is a temporary measure while the original building is being refurbished. Brixton Buzz also says that the new location is a lot less homely than the original. The original cafe (with neon signs still alight) can still be seen.
